The first ProLiant Moonshot server uses the Intel Atom S1200 processor and is optimized for web-hosting workloads. It's a 4.3u server enclosure equipped with 45 Intel-based servers, one network switch and supporting components.
Pricing begins at $61,875 for the enclosure, 45 HP ProLiant Moonshot servers and an integrated switch. It's immediately available in the United States and Canada, and will become available in Europe, Asia and Latin America beginning next month.
HP says it plans to release additional Moonshot servers in the second half of 2013, including servers intended for analytics, telecommunications, web, cloud and massive-scale computing environments.
